Big Five of Bayview
Free talk and performance with Valérie Sainte-Agathe, Christopher Street, Lee Knight and others

Festival Artist-in-Residence Valérie Sainte-Agathe invites fellow artists and storytellers to the stage to commemorate and celebrate voices of change. Teaching artist Christopher Street joins Sainte-Agathe to remember the Big Five of Bayview. They will discuss the work and legacy of community leaders Julia Commer, Osceola Washington, Elouise Westbrook, Ruth Williams, and Rosie Williams, women of tremendous character and energy who stepped forward to advocate for San Francisco’s underserved Bayview–Hunters Point neighborhood. The hour-long event will also include Sainte-Agathe leading a protest music sing-along with banjo player Lee Knight to honor what would have been the 100th birthday of folk music legend and social activist Pete Seeger.

Sainte-Agathe is the artistic director of the San Francisco Girls Chorus, which she has prepared and conducted since 2013. A native of Martinique, she has received degrees from Universite Paul Valery in Montpellier, Montpellier Conservatory, and University of Montpellier. Before moving to the Bay Area, she served in various positions with the Orchestre National de Montpellier, Festival de Radio France, Opéra National de Montpellier, Opera Junior, and the Festival Presence, among others.
